Truckee is a town located in Northern California. It sits in the Sierra Nevada mountain range and can be found about 12 miles (19 km) north of Lake Tahoe. Surrounded by mountains and lakes, there’s no shortage of things to do for those who like the great outdoors. The area is certainly known for its skiing, and there are multiple ski resorts nearby. Or you can go for a bike ride or hike alongside Lake Truckee. And there’s plenty of food to enjoy as well: from coffee shops to pizza parlours and plenty in between. We’ve created a list of our favourite vacation rentals in Truckee, so read on and check out the options.
Let’s start our list off with a two-bedroom condo that can sleep up to six guests. With a large deck and big picture windows, you’ll have stunning views of the forest. There’s a trail right outside the house which is excellent for snowshoeing in the winter or a nice walk in summer. The house has a full kitchen so you can create your favourite meals when you don’t feel like going out. In the living room, you’ll find a gas fireplace and flat-screen tv. Each bedroom has a queen-size bed and there’s also a sofa bed which can sleep two more. And it’s a child-friendly space too with parking.
